About the active lifestyles team

All community based physical activities and group events run by the council are cancelled until further notice.

Our community programme has been suspended. This is as a result of participation dropping – many activities attract older residents and are just not attending. Also as a result of advice from national governing bodies or instructors not being available/self-isolating or settings closing. This includes health walks, community classes (yoga/Tai-chi etc), seated exercise programme.

Parkrun UK have suspended all events nationwide.

Walking Football has been suspended – as per Football Association to cease all grassroots football activity.
